About me

Dr Anirban Maitra is currently employed as a Consultant in Paediatric Respiratory Medicine (Paediatric Pulmonologist) at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital (Manchester University Hospitals), the largest single-site tertiary children’s hospital in the UK. He is the director of the Cystic Fibrosis unit (currently the largest in the country) and has been the lead for bronchiectasis and primary ciliary dyskinesia. Graduated from Calcutta Medical College, India, Asia’s second oldest medical school practicing European Medicine, he has been in the UK since 1997. He has been involved in the tertiary management of children with complicated respiratory problems for the past 17 years. He worked as a Research Fellow at the Bristol Children’s Hospital and had published widely in highly-rated academic journals (BMJ, Thorax, Clinical, and Experimental Allergy). He completed the much-coveted National Grid Training in Paediatric Respiratory medicine from the Sheffield Children’s hospital in 2009 and has been practicing as a Consultant since. He has worked as a Consultant at University Children’s Hospital at Leicester, Alder Hey Children’s Hospital (Liverpool), and worked in tertiary institutions overseas before joining Manchester Children’s Hospital in 2015.

Respiratory problems in children are widely prevalent making it the most important reason for parents to consult a medical professional and Dr Maitra feels that the respiratory needs of children are often unmet. Detailed but focussed history, lung function testing, baseline allergy, immune investigations, and appropriate imaging (Chest X-Ray, High-Resolution CT scan) are some of the methods that Dr. Maitra judiciously employs to evaluate his patients to reach a diagnosis.

In addition to his clinical commitments, he is heavily involved in research and the teaching of undergraduate students, postgraduate students, and junior doctors. He has been a regular speaker at many national and international conferences. He lives in Worsley, Salford, and is happily married to Chandrani, an Information Scientist. The couple has a lovely daughter currently studying Molecular Bioengineering (MEng) at the Imperial College London. Both Dr. Maitra and his wife are committed to increasing awareness of respiratory ailments in the underprivileged areas of the world as their only daughter suffers from asthma and allergies. The couple is also trustees of Centre for Social Change and Development, a UK-registered charity that uses social technology to disseminate information to marginalised communities resident in the developing world.
